Located at the Denali Bluffs hotel. Seating is available inside and outside with nice mountain views. The menu is very limited; this is mostly a BBQ restaurant. Not many options for vegetarians. The restaurant does boast a good number of beers for such a small location. Breakfast is served as well as dinner, no lunch. Breakfast diners may choose from... More

Breakfast buffet was ok, decent selection and variety of food. BBQ menu is very limited, quality is fair. Service at dinner was terrible. We accidentally walked out on the breakfast bill one morning because there was no pricing info and no one watched over us.

I've never reviewed a restaurant negatively before but felt compelled after our meal last night. I've never had tough beef brisket. I'm not sure how you could produce brisket that was so lacking in moisture. To add insult to injury the waitress didn't even offer to take the meal off our tab. I'd like to save others the same disastrous... More

We stayed at Denali Bluffs one night and had dinner and breakfast here. Both meals were very good. No reservations needed. The restaurant is on site and very convenient. It has a log cabin kind of feel and looked clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and attentive.

The food was horrible. I got ribs - had 4 ribs with 2 burnt and dry for over 30.00. Service was bad - never got a refill on my drink. AND thankfully I started drinking my drink with a straw because I found lipstick on the glass and I was not wearing lipstick.

The views here are amazing and it is a great place to have a drink or just sit and relax. You do not have to order to sit there. We ate one dinner and it was horrible. My husband ate the breakfast buffet and said it was good but it was about thirty dollars. That was too much for me... More

The Mountaineer was very convenient because it was just steps from our room at Denali Bluffs Hotel. They have a patio so you can dine indoors or out - the view from either is amazing! The ambiance is a rustic sports bar with a lot of wood and exposed beams, some TVs by the bar. Two adults went for breakfast... More

Excellent and creative bbq dishes are featured. Sure they are pricey, but still worth it, because: -Most Alaska food/products are -Portions are huge. Share everything, and you'll still be full!

The breakfast buffet was plentiful and good, although a bit pricey. Two of the three of us were disappointed with our dinner entrees. The BBQ pork was not up to par for a dish that is supposed to be a specialty.
